Do you work best under pressure? Are you a ‘crammer’? As we enter another new month, (no I can’t believe we are in July either!) all the mums out there running businesses alongside homes will be counting down to the long, summer holidays.
We often speak about living the dream, creating a business around your lifestyle all of your expectations too. Before you dive too far into the summer season give a little time to first evaluating the question ” Are you living the dream, is the business behaving itself?”
Your portfolio has a big job to do – it has to inspire you as this will then have a remarkable impact on your marketing and your success! Your photography has to attract the clients that your business deserves.
So you’ve cracked it. You’ve set up your business exactly the way you want it. Things are running well – it’s amazing you’re managing to fit so much into the day! You’re in control of your accounts, you have some strong leads you’re dealing with, you’re managing your marketing campaigns and you’re overseeing everything that goes ‘out the door’.
In our businesses as well as our lives generally, we’re all busy chasing the next thing. At work, we’re trying to win new customers, market our businesses effectively, ensure internal operations are running smoothly and manage and maintain a productive workforce. In amongst all of this, it can seem like there are simply not enough hours in the day.
Has it stolen your creative oomph?
Creating a business teaches us all such a great deal, firstly it teaches us about ourselves; mainly about our wants, what feels good and what is becoming more and more impossible to live with.
